Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Here is an update on the actions the Trust is taking regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • The community centre remains closed until further notice and all meetings and groups are cancelled.
  • All playgrounds in the village remain closed and must not be used.

The board of Trustees feel that it is no longer appropriate for Scott to walk the village collecting litter.  We have asked our managing agent to investigate alternative arrangements that can be put in place until it is safe for Scott to return to work. Scott’s safety is our primary concern and we hope that all residents understand our decision. 

Now more than ever we need people to take responsibility for their litter and use the bins provided or take it home and dispose of it.  Sacks of household rubbish must not be left by the bins and should be disposed of using your regular London Borough of Enfield bin collection.  Leaving sacks of rubbish is fly tipping, animals can rip these open and the contents will be strewn across the park spoiling the environment for everyone. 

 

We ask all residents and visitors to comply with the latest government advice and keep at least 2 metres away from each other while moving around the village and avoid gathering in groups.

Please use official Government and NHS sources for information, for example:

Tyre dumping across the village

There have been a number of incidents where a large number of car and lorry tyres have been dumped in car parks across the village.  

The Trust are tackling this on three fronts, none of which is straightforward:

1.  We are arranging for tyres in garage areas to be moved so that garages can be accessed.  The main problem here is finding a reputable contractor who can deal with the tyres as they have to be disposed of properly.  There is currently a backlog sending UK tyres abroad for disposal and tyre disposal companies are not accepting tyres.  This might explain why they have been dumped here illegally.

2.  we are trying to identify and prosecute those responsible.  Hopefully we will be able to recover all of our costs.  Residents can help by reporting anything they see to the police and copy the report to the Trust for our records. 

3.  We are looking at measures to prevent this happening again.  This is not easy as there are a number of car parks across the village that residents have access to. 

We will post progress on this website and on twitter and facebook.

2019-20 Rentcharge demands

Hello EIV property owners,

it’s that time of year again when rentcharge is due on your EIV property.

This year, we have changed the arrangements so that you will receive the demand directly from Enfield Island Village Trust and will make payment directly into a Trust-run bank account.

All the details of the new arrangements are given in the rentcharge demand pack that you will receive via post or email – please carefully follow the instructions given.

Unfortunately, the change of arrangements took longer than expected, hence the delay in issuing this year’s rentcharge demand.

Thank you for bearing with us.

Kind regards,

EIVT Board of Trustees.
